His name is Jake. He became a member of our family today! We are so thrilled and happy to have him join our family! I would write a poem about him, but, the little guy tired me out today. Jake is sleeping now, after a very busy day. I guess I had better get to bed, as I know Jake will be waking me up soon!

    Hiya little fella, welcome to Margie's home and I bet you'll get lots and lots of hugs & kisses :D

    Here's a BIG BIG HUG from me Jake! :)

  22. There comes a time doesn't there, when we must rally around friends and give them the kind of support we have to offer as well as the support that they need. Such a time is here now.

    I have spoken to Eileen not too long ago over at and she has been on a long road trip. She's pretty tuckered out and I feel she could use a little encouragement from blogging friends.

    I wonder if you would mind going over to her site and just leaving a few encouraging words. I feel this would be very helpful and that she would really appreciate it.

    Consider it - okay? Thanks a lot. Goodlife.

  23. He's so cute! Congratulations Margie.

  24. Hi Margie!
    Jake is a sweet beautiful new friend. I heard this: If you want to have friend, - buy a dog.
    Good decision.
    Have a great weekendtime!

  26. I wish that Jake brings as much love and happiness into your life as you have to us. Give Jake an extra pet for me.
